On Saturday 25 July 2020 ESC COVERS will launch the COVER2COVER competition. In category one are 14 songs by South African artists that are covers of EUROVISION songs (actual entries or selection songs or Eurovision related because of the original artist who was an entry at Eurovision or by the composers who had written a Eurovision entry). We will list all 14 in the next days, the Afrikaans cover plus the original song.

The forth song  is ‘N TIKKIE VRYHEID  by RINA HUGO plus the original song ,MEINE KLEINE FREIHEIT by NICOLE.

This is not an actual Eurovision entry but NICOLE won the Eurovision song contest in 1982 with Ein bisschien frieden and the composers of that song also wrote this song. In fact the two composers Ralph Siegel (music) and Bernd Meininger wrote many Eurovision entries over the years.


100 RALPH SIEGEL SONGS – SONG 47 (Meine kleine freiheit)

Onto song 47 and it is back to Nicole – not only did she won Eurovision with a Ralph Siegel composition, she recorded many songs over the years composed by him. This song is MEINE KLEINE FREIHEIT which Nicole recorded in German but also in other languages like Dutch. And Rina Hugo covered it in Afrikaans as ‘N TIKKIE VRYHEID and it became one of the biggest hits in South Africa at the time.
